Council bosses in Barnsley have released more details of a planned 41 million pound makeover of the town centre.
The proposals include a new town square, central library and shopping boulevard. It is hoped the revamp will attract future investment into the town.
"We’ve asked hundreds of people, and held several working groups. People were clear about what they wanted. Among other things, we were told loud and clear that Barnsley needs to keep its markets, to create quality open spaces that feel safe, and to make sure business servicing and parking needs are met."
New town square – Expected October 2016: A new landscaped public square where routes into the town centre meet. The square will be large enough for market stalls and public events, and will look into the refurbished indoor market.
Revamped metropolitan centre and market hall – Expected early 2017: Bright, open and inspiring, this newly refurbished space will create flow between outdoor and indoor shopping, and easier to get to for shoppers and businesses.
New shopping boulevard – Expected 2017: By extending Lambra Road there’ll be a new route behind the redeveloped indoor markets with new shopping and leisure opportunities.
New central library – Expected early 2017: Proposed for location on Mayday Green, this state of the art building will be a hub for community activity.
New car parking – Expected November 2015: High quality, safe, bright, and easy to access open-air car parking, with plenty of spaces.
